This was a great course. Definitely like he said "Ableton is a rabbit hole." He took some approaches to using simpler to create interesting grooves through warping techniques i would never have thought of myself.

This was a very informative course. The presentation was clear and I've gained some techniques to lift me out of a very stiff period where my beats were a bit .. well, stiff. Thanks for such an excellent course! I can now use simpler to spice things up a bit.

Nice tips! Thavius is very clear and easy to understand. I appreciate his teaching style. Makes me want to dive deeper into the "rabbit hole" of simpler on my own. Thanks!
P.S. I couldn't figure out why putting clips in a chain was better than just copying them to a new track to trigger, assume efficiency savings?
